Overview

The Enigma Room is Sydney's most innovative independent escape room venue. Suited for small groups of 2-6 people, you and your team will be given a back story that includes an objective, and you will only have 60 minutes to complete your mission and escape the room by working as a team to solve a series of puzzles that will test your logic, lateral thinking and ingenuity.

The escape room was fun and challenged us! Good for groups small or large. Would definitely suit experienced escape room players and also first time players. Highly recommend

Lots of challenges and clues. Trying to escape from more than one room. Great team activity. You really need to think outside the square.

Tried Dr Disaster with two people. It was very fun, lots of moments where we needed to try and see the obvious instead of looking too hard. The host was lovely and we would certainly come back and complete the second room.

My partner and I have done a fair amount of escape rooms before. We played In Memoriam on the weekend. The room itself was enjoyable and definitely different to what we've done in the past, however: - We had the most unenthusiastic game master. I...More

Good variety of puzzles, definitely do-able as a couple. We chose the difficult option which meant we weren’t given clues unless we requested. This is our first escape room as a couple and liked it overall, though felt like it was missing a ‘wow factor’.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
